for Psalm 130:7
thought & prayer
Herbert Lockyer (1886–1984), in All the Books and Chapters of the Bible, said this about how we rise out of depths . . .
Depths! What depths man can be cast into! Depths of poverty, stripped bare of all earthly possessions and dear friends. Depths of sorrow, with plans all ripped to pieces by the storms of adversity. Depths of mental darkness, with nothing but surrounding sorrow and despair. Depths of sin, depths to which there seems to be no bottom. What can we do when in such depths? Cry! Cry unto the Lord!
